NWCCA Round 9 – Sutton Manor

This year’s course was significantly different according to the organisers. “a varied and challenging course for Saturdays race. Whilst there is wet (very) grass, the sections are split with tarmac to give riders some respite. I would advise wearing clear glasses and have tyres reasonably hard as even on the grass there is plenty of grip. The steep climbs have been omitted, so too has the rough track running parallel to the Motorway, scene of many punctures.”

The Lune RCC Mafia, as Simon Wilson described it on the start line, was out in force on Saturday: Jack Pullar (Herbalife-Wheelbase), Ella Sadler-Andrews (Horizon Fitness), David Switzer and I. 

Excellent course. The roots caused me quite a lot of problems. I think every single root on the course interacted at one point or another with my tyres with some comic effect.
